If you read this blog, you already know about the 70,000 hard-working Montanans cannot afford to wait for healthcare. The TEA Party extremists in the last legislature voted to bar the federal funds to pay for this care from reaching Montana.
The Montana chapter of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network is doing something about that, and so should you. It takes about 10 seconds.
The federal government will pay 100% of the costs in the first three years and no less than 90% in the future, resulting in almost $4 billion in economic activity in our state.
By taking legislative action today, Montana will be able to:
- Improve Access to Health Care Coverage → Nearly 70,000 uninsured Montanan’s will gain access to health care and this funding will protect access to rural hospitals
- Detect Cancers Early → Benefits will include cancer screenings, such as mammograms, pap tests and colonoscopies
- Save More Lives → Access to diagnostic and treatment services (regardless of the type of cancer), prescription drugs, and doctors’ visits
- Protect Our Hospitals → Reducing the amount of uncompensated care and unneccessary use of emergency rooms, which drive up health care costs for all of us.
Providing more Montana families with access to affordable health insurance is good for patients, good for our state’s economy, and good for Montana.
